A majority of Canadians believe U.S. foreign policy was one of the root causes that led to the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, and Quebecers are quicker to criticize the U.S. administration for its international actions than other Canadians, a recent poll suggests.
Second, our cousins across the pond are also reaching the conclusion that the best way to avoid terrorist attacks is...distance themselves from the United States.
MOST people believe that the Blair Government’s foreign policy has increased significantly the risk of terrorist attacks and now want Britain to distance itself from America and set a timetable for withdrawal from Iraq, according to a poll for The Times.
Iranian nukes, Saddam Hussein's chemical weapons? Never heard of 'em. It's those damn yanks.
Well, polls are nonsense and all that, but I have no doubt we're losing the battle for hearts and minds and we're losing it big-time. That's because we're the safe devil. The prospect of a nuclear-armed Mullah with a Seventh-Century mentality is really too much to bear. Don't think about it. Attack that darned Bush, those darned Republicans, those darned Americans! Nobody will lock you up for that and maybe you'll escape the next terrorist attack after all.
